Once upon a time...13arts mixed media canvas 34

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 @ 2:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! It's my turn to share a project on the 13arts blog ~ if you get a chance, please be sure to stop by ~ click HERE. I made a canvas featuring a photo of my son Jerry and his beautiful bride, April. This photo was actually their engagement announcement photo.
To start, I added lots of texture to the canvas using Ayeeda Acrylic Modeling Paste along with the Gears Stencil. Once dry, I applied a layer of Gesso ~ Acrylic Primer over the entire background including all the embellishments, 13arts Ayeeda ~ Timeless Subtitles, and lace trimming. Once the background was dry, I randomly applied beautiful Ayeeda Mists Pearl Bordeaux " full strength" as well as some that I diluted for a more subtle shade of pink. I applied  Modeling Paste to the pocketwatch frame, allowed to dry, then applied Pearl Gold Paint followed with Matte Black paint:
To add color to the previously Gessoed title, I sprayed using the following 13arts ~ Ayeeda Pearl Mists: Black GraphiteBrown then lightly, applied Pearl Gold Paint:
To complete my canvas, I randomly flicked on diluted 13arts ~ Ayeeda Gesso:
Many thanks for visiting! I hope my tutorial helps provide you with a better understanding on how to create a project like my sample.
Be Sweet ;)
